Summary Poor

Assessor Rachel Niswander

Notes The lid has been painted over. The bottom lid also has some paint on it as well. The yellow labe is quite discolored, espeically along the top and bottom edges. One side of the label is quite wrinkled down the middle. On one of the logos, the woman's head has been taken off.
